About the Church
“The Church are one the best pop acts of all time” – The Vine

The Church are, at heart and their best, psychedelic electricians, and their full-volume shows in recent years have been ringing endorsements for their stubborn longevity. - David Fricke, Rolling Stone

Steve Kilbey's distant, breathy vocals and harmonies mesh with the mellifluous guitars and sparse keyboard sprinklings….ethereal sounds of early Pink Floyd ("Destination"), the boldness of Echo ("North, South, East And West"), and the pop savvy of Lloyd Cole ("Reptile") together make Starfish a cohesive and compelling work. If you're looking for pop salvation, look no further than The Church. - CMJ

About All India Radio
One of the most elegant and simple instrumental rock albums I've ever heard..a heavenly cloud of radiance that is simply not of the material world. - Brainwashed.com

The 2003 Australian Album of the Year may well have been recorded by an act virtually nobody has heard of. Melbourne-based All India Radio's self-titled third album is a breathtaking triumph; one of the most exquisite, ethereal, instrumental records ever made in Australia. - The Brag Magazine

Lyrics

All Is One

Written By: Steve Kilbey

when the sun has finally set
the light lays down with

say goodbye to everyone youve ever met
better take me as i am

all is one
twos an allusion now
shattered when the day is done
all is one
show me the holy night
show me the rising sun

angels play dixie on their horns
giants walk this earth once more
and the dead rise up as you walk
here i come right through your door

all is one
twos an allusion now
shattered when the day is done
all is one
show me the holy night
show me the rising sun

solo

and the stars will fade from the sky
the moon fall in the sea
mountains will crumble n die
just be sure your hanging out with me

all is one
twos an allusion now
shattered when the day is done
all is one
show me the holy night
show me the rising sun

spirit.......

Maybe Soon

Written By: Steve Kilbey

child dont climb too high
theres danger in the sky above you
all this waiting here for you
child dont swim too deep
just your breath will keep you going
no way i could show you this

child dont walk away
theres something in the things im saying
always
...people out there praying paying

child dont wander off
the mirrors soft
youll fall right through
nothing to stop you

i always wanted to talk with you
im so afraid of the moon
i always wanted to walk with you
maybe soon....

child dont make mistakes
life is full of fakes & failures
all so far in front of you
child dont take it hard
its just that all your cards aint aces
god the faces that you do

i always wanted to talk with you
im so afraid of the moon
i always wanted to walk with you
maybe soon....maybe soon

when the night comes down
and everything is gone
find me standing all alone
